The Very Best Fluffy Waffle Recipe

Multi-Generational Parenting {Recipe: Mike’s Favorite Waffles}

Pin It My oldest brother, Mike, is 22 years older than me. I’ve never thought a whole lot about that, until recently. He was married by the time I was born and began his own family just a few years after my birth. Sure, it was kind of odd growing up with a nephew just […]

Merry Christmas {Recipe: Our Favorite Homemade Cinnamon Rolls}

There are just a couple more days until Christmas! This morning, as I sit by the light of the Christmas tree, with presents wrapped (ahead of time, which NEVER happens) I can’t help but feel so grateful for all of the blessings in my life. I love Christmas, for a multitude of reasons, but mostly […]

French Toast Vertical

Morning Thanks {Recipe: Eggnog French Toast}

Pin It In my fantasy world, mornings would be calm…a time for soft music and happy chatter.  Ideally, I would get up before the kids, sit down to a nice cup of coffee, catch up on the days news (aka Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and make a delicious breakfast for all to share. Instead, most mornings […]

Is Good? {Recipe: Eggnog Syrup for Pancakes or Waffles}

Pin It I made something today that kind of blew my mind. In fact, after it was done cooking, I stuck a spoon into the pot, took a lick and “mmmmmmmmm’d” so loud my 2 year old came running into the kitchen saying, “Is good, mama? Is good?” I continued to spoon the golden goodness […]

Pumpkin Muffins

Birthday Muffins {Recipe: Simple Pumpkin Muffins}

Today is my 38th birthday. For my birthday I woke up and made muffins. Not fancy muffins. Not whole grain, unprocessed, good for you muffins. Plain and simple pumpkin muffins that use a boxed cake mix. I’ve felt like life has been so out of control lately… that I have been out of control…so I […]

Banana Blueberry Muffins

Compromises {Recipe: Banana Blueberry Muffins}

I’ve discovered that with four kids, there is a lot of comprising that goes on during the day. It’d be too easy if all four of them would agree on something. Instead, it is always three wanting one thing while one wants something else. Even if it is just to annoy the others, there is […]

Ham Egg Cup 2

Post-Summer Mama Guilt {Recipe: Ham and Egg Breakfast Cups}

I start each summer off with high hopes and big plans. We make summer “bucket lists” – essentially outlining the fun things we want to do before summer ends. In reality, I spend the last one to two weeks of summer cramming in as much activity as I can so I don’t suffer the post-summer […]

Banana Pancakes

Morning Comfort {Recipe: Sour Cream Banana Pancakes}

You know those mornings where you wake up and by 8am, life just seems a bit too overwhelming? Yeah… I’m having one of those days today. I’ll explain more when I know more, but for now if you could please just send good thoughts out to the universe for my brother, we would greatly appreciate […]

Easter Brunch and Triple Chocolate Cookies

You know there’s something wrong when you get a plate of these Triple Chocolate Cookies in front of you and the last thing you really want to do is eat one. That’s how things have been for me around here lately. I’ve been under the weather since a week ago Thursday. I went to the […]

Breakfast Pie

Mathematics {Recipe: Breakfast Oatmeal Pie}

Today is pi day…3.14. Since I am a food blogger, I am going to join the masses of others who turn this mathematics focused day into something food related. Pie day. Pie is much more fun than the actual math related pi, don’t you think? In all honesty, math is not my strong suit. In […]
